This "hands on" role will involve all aspects of growing our soft fruit/veg crops including a substantial area of strawberries and raspberries grown in substrates. You will also be responsible for supervising 3-4 temporary growing staff, and assist the owner (who is also very "hands on") with various tasks and decisions.
The farm is very well equipped having made significant investments in recent years. It also prides itself on high standards of husbandry.
Experience in commercial fruit growing is essential together with self motivation, flexibility and a strong sense of responsibility. Interpersonal skills are also important, in relation to both the small staff team/customers and owner. Weekend work will be necessary during the season. Mechanichal skills would be helpful during the winter.
